Gifts & Memorial Donations

Patricia Touchstone Folds passed away early Saturday morning, September 15, 2018. Born April 11, 1955, and raised in Greensboro, North Carolina, from a young age, Patricia cultivated a life of love, light, and compassion for her fellow man.

She received her Masters Degree in Social Work at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1986. For the past thirty years, Patricia had conducted practice across the Virginia Peninsula as a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist for Eastern State Hospital, settling in Lanexa, Virginia, before providing services in Colonial Heights and Fort Eustis, Williamsburg, VA.

In the last year of her life, she lived in the way she always had: fully, from her inner spirit to her outer soul. Patricia was known for bringing dreams to life and growing within hearts a sense of lasting peace and strength, and, though she will be missed by many, her memory will exponentially thrive as time trails on.

Patricia is preceded in death by her father, Russell (Rusty) Touchstone of Greensboro; she is survived by her husband John Folds of Lanexa, VA; son Lamar Ford (III) of Newport News, VA; her mother Holly Bauer(husband Ron) of Greensboro; brother Charles Touchstone (wife Marcia, sons Chase and Brett) of Knoxville, TN; and sister Katherine Touchstone Dickson (daughter Taylor Snow Dickson) of Blowing Rock, NC.

Bucktrout Funeral Home of Williamsburg, VA (757-229-3822), in charge of arrangements, will host a visitation September 26 (6pm), and a graveside service will take place at Peninsula Memorial Park September 27 (1pm).

    We met Pat at Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists. It was always\s good to see her and we always exchanged hugs. She often helped on the hospitality team, .smiling as she welcomed guests and regulars. She was very proud of her handsome son. She loved to sing but was unable to join the choir because it rehearsed on a night that she had a conflict. We have missed her recently. She will rest in our hearts for a very long time.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The scriptures point to a time in the near future when God will rescue those who have died from the grave. “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them. Where are your stings, O Death? Where is your destructiveness, O Grave? Compassion will be concealed from my eyes.” (Hosea 13:14) God will bring those who have died back to life, and he will destroy death. No more will we deal with the stings of death. Rather, all living will have the prospect of living forever in paradise on earth. May this hope for the future comfort your grieving hearts.
